Today, we present two upcoming comic books. Each series have a basis on their respective Horror film and television counterpart. These concepts will attract enthusiasts of the genre. The first comic book series we’ll explore is Lowell Dean’s 2014 Comedy, Horror Wolfcop.
Wolfcop comic book series
Wolfcop is set to debut in August 2016. The medium comes courtesy of Dynamite Entertainment. WolfCop #1 will pr in Diamond Comic Distributors’ Previews catalog. The comic book series will also be available in digital version. Digital copies are available on the following online outlets: Comixology, Dynamite Digital, iVerse, and Dark Horse Digital.
Max Marks penned the story with Arcana Studios providing the artwork.
The plot summary to Wolfcop reads as follows:
Ever since hard-drinking local Woodhaven police officer Lou Garou had a late-night bender and stumbled onto dark magic, his life has been turned upside down. Now he moonlights as WolfCop, a rage-fueled, bourbon-swilling, magnum-toting, rabid warrior for justice!
Here are a few comments from the content creators:
“From the moment I created WolfCop, I saw him as a larger-than-life character that could exist in many formats….”
“….To date, we’ve made two WolfCop movies – and I couldn’t be happier that we’re now bringing him into the world of actual comics! In comic form,WolfCop will be truly unleashed, no longer constrained by the budget of an independent film.
“….More explosions! More monsters! More road trips! I’m so excited to bring Lou Garou and friends into this new realm with Dynamite. The WolfCop adventure is truly just beginning…”
Lowell Dean, Director, Writer Wolfcop
“Dynamite’s love of horror comedy can be traced back over ten years to the first comic we ever published….”
“….When we saw WolfCop, we knew it would be perfect for comics! I think this badge-wielding beast will be right at home alongside Ashley ‘Ash’ Williams and our other tongue-in-cheek horror licenses!”
Nick Barrucci, Dynamite CEO/Publisher
“The first time I read the script for WolfCop, I thought that this was a character that belonged in comics…”
“….Naturally, when I was approached to adapt WolfCop into comics, I knew the fans didn’t just want a screen-to-page adaptation….”
“….They wanted more WolfCop. More ass-kicking, more booze, more big guns, and bigger monsters. That’s what we’re delivering in this WolfCop comic book series, and I couldn’t be more excited to bring it to his fans.”
